Dr. Jelisa Lin

Veterinary Ophthalmology Intern

Jelisa graduated with honours from the University of Queensland in 2014. Following graduation, she has worked in a small animal general practice clinic for 7 years prior to returning to Singapore. Throughout university and practice, she has always felt drawn to the study of ophthalmology in all animals, big and small. As such, she is currently pursuing a post-graduate certificate in veterinary ophthalmology offered by the University of Sydney.

She is excited to be a part of The Eye Specialist For Animals as an ophthalmology intern as she continues to learn and develop her skills within the field of ophthalmology. Her interest outside of work includes spending quality time exploring the outdoors with her family and fur kid.
